The Llewellyn family farm an all grass based system near Llawhaden Castle, Narberth, West Wales where they milk a herd of around eighty cows, predominantly Dairy Shorthorns. Growing up on her parent’s Holstein Friesian farm Julie Llewellyn’s passion for dairy cattle was instilled at an early age and she began milking cows when she was 12 years old.
New kids on the nursery slopes find profitability in the Shorthorn. Chris and Sue Malkin brought their first pedigree Shorthorn in 2011 and yet they are confident that they have found the breed that finally suits their Organic system.
When people hear the name Tom Ripley you might think of the Dairy Shorthorn breeder who sold up in the late nineteen eighties to emigrate and farm in Canada not the man who nearly twenty five years later has returned to his roots to start breeding his beloved Shorthorn cows again.
- the functional and profitable breed for the future - Rob and Sue Morgan believe in grasping opportunities; it’s an approach that’s enabled them to grow their farming business within the last nine years from a 24 cow start-up herd to their current dairy enterprise featuring 400 cows. Further expansion is on the horizon and blended Dairy Shorthorn genetics are at the heart of their plans.
